EDGERTON, MO. (AP) – Authorities say they believe two armed men holed up in a northwest Missouri home escaped from a Kansas prison Friday.

Platte County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Erik Holland says officers began chasing the suspects in Platte City, Mo. Holland says shots were fired at officers as the men fled in a stolen car and the men bailed at a home near Edgerton.

Three inmates walked away from a minimum-security unit at the Lansing Correctional Facility in Kansas. Authorities believe the men in the Missouri house are two of the inmates. It’s unclear where the third inmate is.

Authorities say the homeowners said there were firearms inside.

The Kansas Department of Corrections has identified the escaped inmates as 31-year-old Allen M. Hurst, 49-year-old Scott A. Gilbert and 57-year-old Randy A. Ridens Sr.
